Organizations are like organisms, and can be pretty stubborn. Organizations can start leading their own way, and it is difficult to change the direction it is taking. Internal elements, such as miscommunication in the office, destructive group dynamics or simply a lack of capacity, can worsen the situation. The external reality can be challenging too; when new actors come in, when the political situation in the country changes or when headquarters are setting unexpected deadlines. Or if all is going well, but you want to upscale your services: how to go about it?
With six years of management experience in the non-profit sector I understand the challenges organizations face, especially in unstable countries. In my role as manager I have been able to keep an eye on the strategic long-term issues, and been able to create time in my team to work on these together. I have successfully guided my team towards a different way of working that ensured a smoother functioning of the office, created more motivation among colleagues and increased the quality of our services. This experience is supported by my Master in Public Administration.
Often problems consist out of numerous layers and we want to tackle the right one. So finding out what is your core need is essential. Together we can analyze the situation and see what solution fits your context. I have a high sense of responsibility and will ensure that the work will be done in a timely manner.
